't like paul ryan. so you look at all the recent polls, you have four of them. you have reuters, gallup, bloomberg and fox show the president leading. which doesn't mitt romney embrace these polls and acknowledge them? say, this is how it is right now. we're going to change them? >> i think internally they probably are doing a lot of that and trying to figure out how they can shift the narrative, but i think that article is exactly right. yes, mitt romney has been a poor candidate. yes, his comments about the 47% have been truly devastating to this race. i think his problems go way back. they do go to a self-delusion the gop has about the president. that he's awful and a toaster oven could beat him in an election. it's not true. the american people like the president. mitt romney was forced to move so far to the right in the gop primary it's hard to come back to a sensible, mainstream view and his embrace of paul ryan on the ticket just made that that much harder. >> if you're in the wilderness for years and you're not winning and we have 8% unemployment and we should win this thing and

's challenging. one thing to watch also is in the interview show with paul ryan, paul ryan was asked how does your budget plan add up? he says i'm not really sure i have time to explain that right now. you better believe they will press romney about it on wednesday. that's the kind of thing they have to avoid. >> karen, as alice brought up, foreign policy. that being a hot topic issue in the headlines and also for very good reason. americans want to know what president obama's foreign policy is going for. because of situations that seem to be forever in the lexicon of our conversation. certainly in afghanistan with what we've seen happening there. so karen, with that being said, can the president sharpen what he wants to say knowing that's going to be a vulnerable spot for him. mitt romney wants to prove that americans go through strength. and president obama may not have that philosophy. >> peace through strength is a nice slogan, but the president has unfortunately the burden of knowing the facts on the ground and knowing what is possible and what is not possible. foreign policy is complica
. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exemptions. >> mitt romney and i based on our experience think the best way to do this is to show the framework, show the outlines of these plans and then to work with congress to do this. >> that's something congress and i will have to work out together. >> the devil's in the details, though. what are we ta
to how he will fix the economy. use of paul ryan over the weekend talking about -- you saw paul ryan over the weekend talking about how he does not have time to explain the numbers in his budget. people want that explanation and are creeping back from the governor. guest: given the constraints of the debate format, they will not give chapter and verse from the town and its parent -- from the candidates. this is more important for mitt romney. he benefits as a challenger from standing on the same stage as the incumbent president of the united states, but there is a greater burden to convince the wavering voters, the 12 or 14 people that i've not made up their minds in this election. host: post-debate spin, howard kurtz, how important is that, and how social media plays a more important role? guest: the post-debate spin, i think it is critical, as people watched the debate, but they can make up their own mind, but that is an hour and half. what you get for the next several days or a week are the clips that are replayed, the chair by the commentators. you mentioned the al gore eye- rolling t
, but they don't seem to be taking-- seniors don't seem to be taking very well what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do about it. >> well, the first-- the first bit of good news is that mitt romney and paul ryan are not going to change medicare for those seniors. they're going to change medicare for folks like me, who just turned 50, and younger, who are going to need to know that if you want to have any semblance of medicare, you're going to have to make some changes to it. here's the dirty little secret, bob-- the president of the united states knows that, too, but he's not talkin talking abo. he's not being honest with the american people about it. in the end, i think the american people, if we lay out our vision well, will reward us for tell truth. and the president right now is avoiding the truth the way he's avoided so many hard truths over the last four years. >> schieffer: governor, if mitt romney does not win, are you going to run for president in 2016? >> mitt romney's gonna win, so it's a question that-- know, i don't need to address. i hope in 2016 to be work hard for mitt romney
. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> i want to bring in dana milbank and matt welsh. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> i suppose we shouldn't be surprised this race to lower expectations. give us your take on the expectations for this debate. >> romney needs something to happen for him. he's had a bad couple of weeks. ever since the 47% comment which i think that be difficult for him. what he needs to do is kind of what obama did in 2008. when you look at when things started
that mitt romney deserves a chance with met right bridge -- with paul ryan. they have a solid plan to turn this country around, to save social security, not cutting it, like all the old people are being indoctrinated with. one party is pro-life. one party is pro-choice. if we want four more years of these excuses of blaming bush, of blaming anything you can but still keeping people stagnant without rewarding small businesses -- small businesses create 74% of the jobs in this country. obama wants to tax them. does that make sense to anyone? and we are paying $800 million on interest alone? we cannot sustain this. we need a change. especially you catholics, if you are voting for mr. obama, you may as well be complicity in the abortions taking place, because there are far too many and we need to solve these social and financial issues with a strong person who will defend our country, not make excuses that it is our fault for all of the things going on in the world. host: we will do this for about 25 more minutes, getting your thoughts. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama s
with republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan, himself a packers fan. >> give me a break. it is time to get the real refs. >> reporter: the real refs have been locked out since june, as part of a labor dispute. all season, the replacement refs the league brought in have been the source of enormous frustration. so, who are they? according to espn, the man who called last night's touchdown is a local executive for bank of america who only officiated high school and junior college football games. today, we have also learned that another replacement ref -- not involved in last night's game -- has been fired from something called the lingerie football league for incompetence. if there's any good to come out of this, aside for seattle fans, >> oh, my god it's amazing. it was the best seahawks game i've ever seen. >> reporter: it's that this uproar may help end the lookout. tonight, the two sides are reportedly back at the table. dan harris, abc news, new york. >>> now i want to bring in michael wilbon from our espn co-hosts of "pardon the interruption". michael, let me get you to say what
and paul ryan this election could come down to one state. >> o.h. o.h.! works every time. >> reporter: ohio is one of the key swing states in this election and today romney and president obama will be battling for attention there, but the latest cbs news poll swing states shows romney with some ground to make up. the poll just out this morning has president obama up 10 points in the buckeye state, he had a six point lead before the convention. >> ohio we tried what they are selling. it didn't work, we don't like it, we're not going back. >> reporter: the numbers are similar in florida where the president has a nine point lead over romney and in pennsylvania he's maintained a double digit advantage for a couple of months now. but it's ohio that's been the main focus of the campaign. with president obama and his republican rival each making his 14th trip to the state. >> here in ohio -- >> reporter: turn on the tv in ohio and this is what you're likely to see. both campaigns spent more here than any other state. president obama and his allies have spent nearly $48 million on ads in the state
